Hi,

 

Is it possible to have a form on my web site that a user can fill out their information and when they hit submit it sends the POST data directly to my FileMaker 14 database? 

 

I do not want to use web direct or have to grab the data any other way. I want to be able to POST it directly.

Yes, PHP (or other web app) can POST to web published FMS hosted databases. If the "form" is from the "outside", that is.

If you want to post a form as seen in FM's Web Viewer, I suggest you research using JavaScript and the FM protocol to push values to FM.

(a starting point for FMP protocol - also called FMP URL - in no particular order):

(the above with Javascript):
